Strobe effect

A visual phenomenon that occurs when an object is illuminated by short intense flashes of high frequency. The human brain is not capable of processing images in too rapid succession as static and instead perceives them as motion. The stroboscopic effect, e.g. the rhythmic illumination of a moving object, can create optical illusions such as the wheels of a moving car spinning backwards. The stroboscopic effect can have a negative effect on human psyche and performance.
